parkrun has a once a year option on New Year's Day, to run 2 events on the one day - regardless of what day it falls on. We are excited to announce that Mernda will have a New Year's event at 8:00am!
New Year's day is the only day when parkrunners can complete 2 official parkruns in one day. Start times are flexible so that close by events can work together to provide doubles. Keep your eye on the compendium for news on which local parkruns will run at 9:30am. www.parkrun.com.au/christmas-compendium/
The global rules are:
No doubles allowed on Christmas day (25th December)
Doubles allowed on New Year's Day (1st January), but no trebles
Start times on 25th December may be between normal start time and 1 hour afterwards
Start times on 1st January, may be between 30 mins before normal start time and 1.5 hours after start time.
